Medium Format Scanner Camera
If you use hold a lens in front of a wall which is across from a window you will be able to project an upside down image of that window onto the wall. If you hold a scanner up in place of the wall you can scan that projected image into a digital photo! Using some cardboard, tape and an old magnifying glass it is possible to make a medium format black and white camera out of an old flatbed scanner.
